Ramsey Responds - Caring for our Community

Ramsey Responds

Coronavirus Update: (As of April 4, 2020)

Consistent with our core mission, we will continue to provide financial assistance to those in need in our community.   Please consider making a donation through this website - go to the Donate Page.


Ramsey Responds is coordinating with St. Paul RC Church to offer food and toiletries for local residents in need during this uncertain and difficult time. 

Beginning Tuesday, April 7th, we will graciously accept donations of non-perishable food such as rice, beans, pasta, pasta sauce, canned fruits and vegetables, pancake mix, peanut butter, soup, canned fish (e.g. tuna) and meats, oatmeal, cereal, boxed meals (e.g. mac & cheese), Parmalat, canned milk and shelf-stable juice. 

We will also be accepting toiletries, paper goods and ShopRite gift cards. 

Your donations may be dropped off to our volunteers every Tuesday from 5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the garage behind the church. Our volunteers will then distribute to those in need. 

If you have any questions, please call or text Ramsey Responds at: 201-312-4843 or the St. Paul Help Line at 551-244-1040. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and will alleviate the struggles experienced by countless families.

We are and remain committed to ensuring that we continue to provide help to Ramsey residents in need, particularly in this time of increased stress and economic hardship. 

If any resident needs assistance, please reach out to us at (201) 312-4843 or by e-mail: ramseyresponds@gmail.com. All inquiries are confidential.

In order to ensure the safety of our volunteers, while providing help to those residents in need, we have adopted the following policy:

Effective immediately, we will be suspending all furniture, clothing and other pick-ups and deliveries for the foreseeable future. 

 Ramsey is a great community and together we will all get through this.  

Ramsey Responds is a community-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to helping residents in need. We provide for Ramsey Residents in times of hardship with assistance towards rent, mortgage, utilities, food, and other essential needs.

Ramsey Responds also runs clothing and food drives, including an annual Winter Clothing Drive and a Thanksgiving Food Drive.  We also run the Holiday Adopt a Family Program. See our Events page for more details.

Ramsey Responds is dependent on the generosity of our community and local organizations. Donations are tax deductible and all contributions are used to further the efforts of the organization in providing much needed assistance to Ramsey residents.
